this last month has been one of fear for me .went to the doctor for check up . to my horror the doctor declared himself unhappy with certain things regarding my health and and sent me for tests re possible cancer . as you can imaging i was in shock and left the surgery  with my head and my life shattered all sorts of things entered my mind . how was i going to tell my wife and children etc etc . but inside there was this unbearable fear as my world crumbled around me . after the shock of hearing him telling me the possibilities and armed with letters for ultra sounds and blood tests i walked to my car and life took on a different meaning . would i see my children fulfill their dreams and would my grandchildren remember me these were some of the thoughts  that ran through m mind . every night lying awake trying no to focus on death , the waiting became very stressful , today was the day i'd know my faith , speaking of faith its amazing how dependent you become on prayer  .so i rang the surgery to find out the results , i can assure you it is one fearful time .the doctor was not available and    his sec told me he would ring me after surgery finished , again the waiting was horrific .eventually around 11.30 this morning he rang with the news . i'm fine no traces of cancer the relief is fantastic .just thought i'd share that with you if you were having a bad day on her .god bless.

Does Mincer not see it shows how popular Workrider is and shows up his Lavender Hill Mob for what they are.

I don't think Borneo is being very authentic here.

Why did you dodge him in Thurles?

How are you encouraging him to continue with this drivel?

Have you read his thread on the HR forum where he can't compose the title without using expletives? If that was other forumites on here, you would be condemning them for their foul language, yet they're the only adjectives in Wonk's vocab.

The forum isn't a place for detailing your daily hygiene routine, planned excursions or family health issues.These are continuous and not one offs.
